A Summer rain refreshed last night and I’ve never appreciated a rain more than this Summer with the news of drought from important farming areas in the U.S. Even the Country fairs are impacted as crops have withered and died and herds are smaller.
The rain drops lingering on petals refresh.
A haze of humidity hovers but somehow the drops glistening in the heat cool thoughts and keep me outside longer than usual on such a close day.
The temptation is to linger at the breakfast table with the newly cut dahlias gracing the morning. But gardeners need to push themselves to be outside with the plants, feel the heat, sweat in the humidity but also be refreshed after the rain.
